At the Tokyo Olympic Games to be held in 2020, signature activities calling for Ripple ‘s XRP to be adopted as the official cryptocurrency are topics on SNS.
This signature activity was launched by Ken Takahashi in November of last year at the platform “Change.org” where you can sign online activities online.
As of December last year, the number of proponents, which was around 3000 people, has increased to 6,400 as of October 5, and it is a little less than the target of 7,500.
Ken Takahashi describes why XRP should be adopted at the Tokyo Olympic Games as follows.
Global events like the Olympic Games bring great opportunities for the cultures and economies of the organizing country, but face many challenges in infrastructure construction, transportation, payment services and so on.
Especially when tourists flow into the country, demand for local currency increases, so foreign currency exchange is crowded and it takes time.
We believe that the high speed and high security of Ripple Lab’s XRP transaction processing will greatly contribute to solving this problem.
However, on Twitter, the opinion that “using Japanese yen has economic effect” is raised.
Why should I attract the Olympic Games to make Japan excitement Why will I try to use XRP instead of Japanese yen …
Originally xrp is for bridging …
I can understand if the overseas came to Japan to improve xrp to replace it with Japanese yen instead of local, but I feel like something to settle with xrp itself
